Hoot and Holler!
Ill admit I enjoyed this movie WAY more then I should have. Hoot Gibson is starting grow on me for some odd reason, it seems he wanted to be a western star without really resorting to guns to resolve feuds. In this movie, he plays a hired hand who realizes the land, Sunset Ranch, he wanted so desperately to have has been sold! To a woman to boot! So hes rather annoyed about that, but of course, being a western and all, the woman starts getting more charming by the minute. But the womans brother who also owns the land, is a bit shady, hes in the mafia you see, and his activities spill over into the Ranch. So its up to Hoot and his gang to do something about it!
I hate to say this, but I found this to be one of the better written B westerns out there, full of funny dialogue and cute one liners, this had me from the get go, so I would definitely recommend this if youre looking for a great B western.

Hoot Gibson at First Division
It's a story as old as them thar hills, really. The new owner of the Sunset Range is silly city girl (Mary Doran) all ready to believe him when cowpuncher Hoot Gibson tells her that mountain cows have shorter legs on the one side and would fall over and die if placed on level ground. There is also a weakling brother who is in cahoots with a blackmailing Chicago gangster and a furious chase culminating in a shootout. You fill in the blanks. Hoot Gibson had being doing this kind of stuff since the 1910s, and despite an expanding waistline, he still possessed that effective, if unpolished, charm of yore. "Sunset Range," which featured old friends from Gibson's silent days at Universal, including the luxuriously mustachioed Bill Gillis, old-timer Goober Glenn and erstwhile protegee Fred Gilman, was the first of two westerns the veteran star would do for First Division Productions, a film distributor briefly engaged in supplying rural houses with double-bill fare.
